Finally, a nice snow in Waco. I've lived in Waco almost 20 years (wow, really 2o years, go figure) and I don't remember ever having a prettier snow than on Tuesday. It was beautiful!! I loved the big fat flakes that fell and covered everything within a few hours. We got out of school at noon and had a late start the next day, a perfect 2 days for someone who works at a school :) One of my favorite things was driving to school on Wednesday and seeing all the snow men around town!
Since Steve got home early Tuesday as well we took advantage of an afternoon off and went car shopping. We had done some test drives on Sunday and were trying to decide if we were ready to make the leap into an SUV. Well, I've been ready for years :) We found the right deal and since no other customers were at the dealership things went pretty fast. So we are now the proud owners of a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz. I've been checking this SUV out for a few years so I am so excited to finally have one! We traded in the Civic so Steve now gets to drive the Camry. We haven't had any issues with the Camry so that's great. I love the color and it has room for 7 so come over and I'll give you a ride!

The Winter Olympics are here! I love watching the Olympics and after visiting Salt Lake City this summer and seeing some of the past venues I am even more pumped up. My favorite sport is figure skating- pairs, dance, men's, and women's- I like them all. The next 2 weeks will be packed with enjoyment of celebrating USA wins and the overall artistry of so many events. I also like the Visa commercials, Go World!

Last Friday we awoke to a little bit of snow. Nothing like the Dallas area but it was more than we have gotten in awhile. I actually enjoyed driving to school that day seeing the snow on the trees and such, so pretty.
